Welcoming you to your new home

In September, just before the start of term we hold our Early Arrivals and International Welcome Week for new students.

This gives you the opportunity to get to know the campus and the city, and to meet staff and other new students. We provide you with advice and guidance on important issues such as health services, opening a UK bank account and getting part-time work. There are also social events and trips to help you to make new friends. The week is free, but you may need to pay a small fee for some events.

We even provide a free bus service from London Heathrow Airport to Leicester at the start of the week (restructions apply).

Early Arrivals and International Welcome Week is followed by the general Welcome Week at the start of term for all our new students. So you will have two weeks to settle in, ask questions, make new friends and get everything sorted out before your actual teaching starts.
